I am looking for load data for 300WSM throated for the longer 210 - 215 projectiles.
I have not got the barrel yet but should have it by mid January. I've got brass, primers and bullets just trying to find powder. I have V560 and H1000 on hand. Will either of these work ok?
This rifle will be used exclusively for Elk Hunting.
Any suggestions or load data would be appreciated.

I’m running 212gr Hornady ELDX with RE26 and Fed 215 GMM primers at 2.94” oal....the load is shooting lights out. Several faster powder charges under 0.5” for 3 shots....powder charge is in the photos.

What speeds are you getting?

Looks like from the burn rate chart RE 26 is just under H1000 being a little faster powder. The V560 is a little faster than the RE26.
I guess my question is if the V560 a suitable powder for the 300WSM? RE 26 along with the other popular powders are almost impossible to find.
